In this project, we restored
the bedroom wing of the house.

The house was built of coral rock,

This is the hallway in the bedroom
wing. It opens to the master bedroom and guest room and a shared bath.

The paint was chipped and repainted many times. The owner wanted a high gloss finish; which meant a lot of putting and sanding.
